Mark These Dates - Public Budget Hearings

Milwaukee County Supervisor Elizabeth M. Coggs, Chair of the County Board’s Committee on Finance and Audit, has announced a series of public meetings next month to hear comments from citizens about the funding of County programs and services.

“The 2010 budget will be the most difficult budget in my 21 years on the County Board of Supervisors. We want to make it as easy as possible for County residents to share their priorities with us directly,” Supervisor Coggs said. “This fall, we will consider this input as we adopt a responsible budget for Milwaukee County residents.”

The first hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, September 9th at the Brown Deer Public Library from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. Subsequent hearings are scheduled at the Franklin Law Enforcement Center, the Wilson Park Senior Center in Milwaukee, and Gordon Park Pavilion in Milwaukee. See the schedule below for details:
